I Shot Bi Kidude, a documentary by Andy Jones, starts touring this week screening in Glasgow, Durham, London and Leeds.
In late 2012, Tanzanian media reported that 100 year old singer, Zanzibari cultural icon Bi Kidude had been kidnapped by a relative who claimed that longtime musical and business associates were mistreating her. Independent filmmaker Andy Jones, who examined Kidude’s mythic life in the documentary As Old As My Tongue, returned to Stone Town to investigate. The result is a new documentary with a deep emotional core, a portrait of a unique character and unlikely friendship, and a fascinating insight into world music.
The North East Preview will take place at The Old Cinema Laundrette, Durham on 02 November. The screening will be accompanied by a Q&A and a live performance by Mim Suleiman. To book a ticket, please see click here
